Heh, hang around here long enough and you'll see that # of replies have nothing to do with what gets posted.

You can have a combustion cannon milled from solid stainless steel posted and the thread will vanish in a week...

...and a cannon made from a soda bottle which rambles on forever.


I think it's an excellent bit of work, you've got on with it much faster than the usual rate of construction round here (don't even ask what mine is) and it actually looks like what you're calling it :wink:


I'm not hearing anything about whether it works or not though :P

Go ahead and launch that cat?

Just kidding, that thing looks awesome. I know it's pretty basic, but the decals and paint just set the whole thing off.

Nice job and I look forward to more of your projects (assuming they are going to be military based, a tank would be cool).

That thing really is nice looking...beautiful paint work. I had to look twice to make sure that was a PVC launcher and not the real thing.

Take a video when you get it working fully.

This is one of the best cosmetic cannons I've ever seen.

The best cannons here never get long threads. With a cannon made from cellular core pipe and soda bottles, people can start complaining about safety and then start a big debate as to the integrity of various materials.

When people see a cannon milled out of solid stainless steel bar, complete with fully automated firing sequence and angle adjustment, running on 5x oxy/MAPP, you get about 1.5 pages of "holy sh*t that's amazing dude!!!", and then it dies, because people have nothing better to say, and no advice for improvement.

Now, considering that this cannon has a great paintjob, high attention to detail, LED lights and warning labels, and actually manages to incorporate a Trigatron, I'd say that this thread is on it's last legs :lol:

This project is actually inspiring me to consider a coaxial combustion shoulder fire design. I would be doing the metered propane and fan thing...performance sacrificed for cool and impression. The LEDs have grown on me some and will be a real crowd pleaser on night shots.
